    It's also a bit hopeful (cautiously) and reflective. Luke looks particularly wised up, but perhaps I'm overinterpreting the scene. The heroes know that they have to be serious about things, get up and continue battling against the Empire, and they've experienced a sense of loss over Han.

    I selected TESB, because it is still the most emotional mature of the OT. Also, AOTC, because the ending is ominous and on point- you wonder what's going to happen. It's also beautiful as well.

    Return of the Jedi winning so far with a solid 7 votes over 2-4 votes of the rest of the films- blasphemy- if I'm not too blunt! I understand on account of the music and the sense of an emotional climax (which yes, it succeeds), but it still baffles me why fans gravitate towards it on account of it being the end of the OT and no one really important dying, besides Vader. Nearly every one receives a happy ending- even Vader.

    I was re-analyzing the end not too long ago, and logically- Luke's reactions- are illogical. We have him going from pure sadness and sorrow at Vader's death to pride?/ a sense of honor when he's burning Vader to being slightly bummed and isolating himself at the party (when he was cheerfully greeting others) to see Vader's ghost and co. to being happy again. His reaction Vader burning is particularly baffling in the whole mix; I'd understand better if it was just the other 3. Even then, I don't know; I find it more weird I think about it. I know that Vader burning was added to the script (presumably after a worker pointed out what happened to Vader's body). Perhaps, Hamill wasn't given the proper character actions/emotional directions in relation to the script?

    Anyway, I will still respect the fans' decisions, but it always seems like they gravitate towards ROTJ for some reason (score, happy ending, lack of death, emotional climax).

    As far as I’m concerned, ROTJ isn’t just the best Star Wars movie ending ever, it is the best movie ending ever.

    I couldn’t decide on a second choice. The endings of TPM and ANH are basically just victory celebrations, and well earned ones indeed, but they don’t add all that much to the movie. Similarly, TESB’s ending does a great job of depicting the overall “mood” of the film but doesn’t add anything more beyond that.

    The ending of ROTS is a perfect sad ending, and one that needed to happen, but it’s still hard to label such a sad moment as a “favorite.”

    The ending of TFA doesn’t even feel like a Star Wars ending to me. I’m not sure if this even makes sense, but I feel like a real SW ending is “mostly conclusion with a hint of cliffhanger” - but TFA feels like it is just a cliffhanger.

    The ending of TLJ doesn’t work for me either - I mean I do like that broom boy symbolizes the idea of the masses being inspired, but nonetheless the ending is composed entirely of characters who never appeared before and never do again.

    The ending of TROS is tough for me to decide how I feel about it. It basically has three components: (1) Force Ghosts looking on silently, (2) Twin suns symbolizing hope for the future, and (3) Rey Skywalker. Which means they basically copied the ending of the OT (1) AND the ending of the PT (2), and while (3) is not a copy of anything, it is still telegraphed by the title of the movie. Overall, it’s satisfying but not very original.

    Yeah, I know, I skipped AOTC. It’s a wedding. It’s not a sad wedding. It’s not a happy wedding. It’s just a wedding. It concludes the movie appropriately.

    I love the ending of Rogue One but that wasn’t one of the choices.

    But if we can include TV shows then Mando S2 would be my pick.

    Rogue one is definitely my favorite. That scene on Scarif was one of the coolest things I've ever seen, and it was very emotional and went into something Star Wars hasn't really done before, in the fact that they just straight up killed (that I can think of) every main character. Jyn and Cassian's last scene was also beautiful, especially the giant golden explosion.

    But more than that it's Vader. His scene played on something from the Vader comics, where Tarkin notices that Vader really "comes alive" when he kills. I really felt that in this scene, and thought it was cool how, even if it wasn't intentional, that they did that. The way he stands looking into space at the end was also cool, and showed his cool magnetized boots.

    Out of the options given... I'd say TFA, because honestly I don't really like the endings of the other movies as much.
